Lyrics for “My Heart Is Open” are below.

I know you’re scared, oh I can feel it
It’s in the air, I know you feel that too
But take a chance on me, you won’t regret it, no
One more no and I’ll believe you
I’ll walk away and I will leave you be
And that’s the last time you’ll say no, say no to me

It won’t take me long to find another lover but I want you
I can’t spend another minute getting over loving you

You don’t ever say, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah
Want to hear you say, yeah yeah yeah
Cause my heart is open
Now you’ve got to say, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah
Want to hear you say, yeah yeah yeah
Want to hear you say, want to hear you say, want to hear you say
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yeah, yes yes yes yes yes

It’s just a moment, go and seize it
Don’t be afraid to give your heart to me
And if you do I know that I won’t let you down, no
Yeah, so hand it over, trust me with your love
I’ll do anything you want me to
Cause I can’t breathe until I see your face

Oh and I don’t need time to find another lover but I want you
I can’t spend another minute getting over loving you

You don’t ever say, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah
Want to hear you say, yeah yeah yeah
Cause my heart is open
Now you’ve got to say, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah
Want to hear you say, yeah yeah yeah
Want to hear you say, want to hear you say, want to hear you say
Yes yes yes yes yes yes

  1. I hope they perform the song on The Voice. Surprisingly I ended up liking this song. If they perform it on The Voice I’m sure it will be a moderate hit.

  2. Aww I like it, it’s not exactly a dance number like a lot of the typical chart-topping songs but I bet this could still be a success, it’s nice, their voices work well together in my opinion, I’m happy with this!

  3. Very good song !
    Only one critic, gwen has the voice a little too deep at the beginning, but with the Adam’ s shrill voice, it’s a beautiful duet.
    At the end, her voice is more sweet, better !
    I noticed, that she has the voice deeper since some years ???????( like a transformation because births ???)

  4. Yes, Gwen’s voice has changed, but that has been a steady process for many years now. Just compare her voice on ND’s first album to her voice on RoS. Her first verse on MHIO is very deep though. Makes me a little nervous about possible live performances, because sometimes Gwen has a hard time singing those low notes.

  5. This song sounds a bit Undone-esque to me. It’s a lovely tune. I hope they release it later this year, maybe in November with decent budget video. I was afraid I would not like the song because I don’t like Adam’s voice that much. I’m glad they went for a ballad, a more toned down song. It compliments both voices.

  6. I haven’t liked anything new I’ve heard from M5 so far, so I was getting nervous about this. I also think it’ll be better acoustic.

    Frederic…a woman’s voice does deepen as we age. I’m not sure if this song was right for Gwen’s voice to be honest… It might be tough for her live. I like it, but I’m not wild about it yet… The lyrics are very basic. More “yes yeses” than anything else?

  7. It’s a nice song. One problem with it though judging by the first listen, they say the line “yes yes” too often it drags on to a point.

  8. I mean that song is a typical modern autotune hymn but it grows on me. Plus, I like Gwen’s emotional singing on that track. Some harmonies in the background are really beautiful. Maybe Adams voice will get on my nerves after a few times…

  9. Their voices go quite well together but it’s so boring! I can’t see it being released as a single, it just sounds like end of album filler. The chorus isn’t interesting enough for it to work as a single.

  10. I actually don’t think this is either generic or too polished. But of course when somebody isn’t pleased they will say it’s boring, a flop, a filler or that it sucks. Typical. If you don’t like the song, then don’t buy it.

  11. As I said before, I really do like it but I don’t think it’s necessarily catchy enough to hit off as a big hit.. I kinda wanted this to be a big catchy pop tune just so it’d be right up there in the charts!

  12. @Jam, yeah I gotta agree that this doesn’t necessarily screams HIT but I’m sure that with the right promo with a nice video and if they perform on The Voice it will become a moderate hit.

  13. I think its a pretty song and I really like the melody. It doesn’t scream “huge hit” to me though, but just a nice ending touch to the album. It would be sweet if they performed it on The Voice together.

  14. After listening to the full album a few times I have to ask…when will Adam get crap for being the male Taylor Swift? This album should be called VS Model whipped. Its so needy its annoying. This song is fine, but after so many of Behati take me back, its a bit much.
